Abstract

A five-winter satellite study of the 'instant occlusion' mode of extratropical cyclogenesis has been undertaken for the Southern Hemisphere oceans. The phenomenon shows a maximum frequency of occurrence over latitudes 30-55oS, where it is closely associated with the locations of the winter 'climatic fronts'. The longitudes of Australasia and the eastern Indian Ocean are particularly favored for 'instant occlusion' developments. -from Author
